The much anticipated carbon wheelset from California has finally arrived and more than lives up to the hype. 3 Years in the making and built from the ground up specifically for mountain biking, no detail has been left unattended to in the search for the ultimate in strength, compliance and performance on the trails. This 27mm version is perfect for trail, enduro and all mountain riding for the weight concious, but don't be fooled into thinking those savedgrams equate to lost strength, these are some seriously robust wheels.
Setting strength and impact resistance as their highest priority hasn’t led to an uncomfortably stiff ride, this wheelset is compliant enough to remove the ‘wooden’ feeling that some carbon rims suffer from, yet so strong it sailed through UCI testing standards so easily Santa Cruz had to develop their own tests where the Reserves beat all competition.
Thanks to relentless prototyping and testing everything from the thickness and shape of the rim beads to spoke hole reinforcements has been perfected to maximise strength, so much so that spokes will fail before the rim does. Thanks to a sensible build that doesn’t require a whole new set of tools, a broken spoke won’t slow you down for long though.
Backed by a no-nonsense lifetime warranty. Santa Cruz are so confident they have perfected the wheel that if they fail while you are riding they are replaced, simple as that.
Featuring all of the advantages of the Torch hub mechanism-low drag, low weight, and the ultimate in axle compatibility- tied into a traditional, "Classic" hub. Torch hubs are the solution for any rider seeking an approachable flanged hub to build into a no-compromise, high-performance wheelset and feature that unbeatable freehub sound.
Total weight of wheelset with i9 hubs is 1735g.

Whoever is looking for the most affordable high performance hubs available, should take a very close look at the 350 hub line-up. The same performance as its even higher end cousins comes with slightly less weight optimized parts to offer the same reliability at a much lower cost. The 350 hub is for those who maybe like to ride the trails a little more than drooling over catalogs and specs
